Well, What can I say...This new BMW X5
4.8is is a Rocket. I have all the
bells and whistles, and it all seemed
to work fine. However, after just 3000
miles in a week, I wrapped it around a
pole off of HWY 169 near Burnsville MN,
I think I was exceeding the speed limit
by 100 mph, or so. It was a wild ride,
all the airbags appeared to work fine.
Looking for car insurance now to
purchase another one!!!
Car is not worth the dealer hassle. My
X5 lease exp. and the plan was to get
another one. UNTIL my turn in exp. 2
dealers Bob Smith,& Century both said
the car was perfect. I also asked the
pick up dealership to precheck the
car. They didn't. Finally dealer
picks up the car charges $1200 for a
variety of small issues. I had a fit,
called up BMW,they then came up with an
enitrely different list but still 1,200!
If known, I could have repaired all
items for alot less. I tried resolveing
with BMW corporate, no response.
They're to many other good choices out
there to put up with this nonsense. I
just bought the Volvo SUV and I'm happy.
Greater responsibliities between
dealerships and owners. The dealers
don't really care past the immediate
